On Feb. 17, close to 800 or more middle and high school students came to UNC Greensboro to compete in challenges like Remote Sensing, Mousetrap Vehicle, Forensics, Anatomy and Physiology, and Mission Possible. Most events took place in Sullivan, Petty and Moore Nursing Buildings. (A few photos are here.)
Julia Loreth (Lecturer, Biology), Bob Muir (Professor Emeritus, Physics) and Jerry Walsh (Professor and Associate Department Head, Chemistry & Biochemistry) served as regional co-directors for the Greensboro Regional Science Olympiad.
Science Olympiad is a national organization that supports elementary, middle and high school science competition events across the country. The North Carolina Science Olympiad, centered at NC State University, organizes 15 regional competitions across the state, one of which is at UNCG. The program brings to our campus very strong science and technology students from regional schools.
